If you prefer to bring your own soda, place a luggage tag on it and check it curb side. Mine has always arrived to my room without any issues.

Question

What is the nightly schedule of all the shows? Are all the shows every night?

Answers
answer 1
There are multiple shows and entertainment going on all the time - you sign up for the day and time you wish to attend even the free shows now. Each person can sign up for seeing the show one time - this helps to ensure everyone can enjoy the show and there is no crowding or late comers blocking your view.

Some of the entertainment is for a cost and you can sign up for the pay shows you would like to attend - they are running throughout the cruise so that if you miss a show on one night you can sign up for a different night.

I was able to sign up before the cruise for some of the shows, but once on the ship there were more shows to take advantage of.

The variety of type of show is good as there were some shows that I did not want to miss and then there were others that I chose to do other activities instead of taking in that show.

The pay shows were excellent and included a meal as well.

You can view the schedule on line at My NCL and reserve the shows or wait for the daily bulletin on board. The shows vary and are not on every night.

THE boat docks in a port+you walk out of the

There are no self-service laundries. All ships offer laundry, dry clean & pressing services. They have laundry bags in your stateroom that you can give to the cabin stewards. Usually around the middle of the cruise they offer discounts on the services.
However, I wouldn't use it for any delicate or expensive dresses.

What is the dress code for the main dining rooms

asked 8 months ago
by
inscom

answer 1
Business or cruise casual, basically, slacks or Dockers for the men, and a collared shirt of any sort, and slacks, sundresses, skirts for the ladies. Basically casual but nice. I have seen jeans in the dining room, as long as they are clean and presentable and not faded nor torn.
The ship will also have "Formal or not:" nights where you can choose to dress formally or not, many people do, some do not, it is your choice. Whichever way you decide to go, you will not be out of place.

You are cruising Freestyle. Formal clothes are not required on NCL. You can wear "smart casual" clothes to the specialty dining rooms and the main dining rooms.

PICKUP IN NY

WHERE EXACTLY SHOULD WE TELL RIDE TO PICK US UP AT PIER

answer 1
Pier 88
12th Avenue and 55th Street; it is set up much like an airport, departures on one level, arrivals on another level.
To avoid crowds you could meet across the street from the pier, but the cruisers would have to carry their luggage with them.

The port has been restricting traffic entering the terminal, and arriving passengers have been sent out across 12th avenue to wait for pickup. Pier 88 - the southernmost - is at 48th street, but it gets very hectic there, as there's also a cab stand there. I found we were better off walking a few blocks north or south, finding a quieter area and telling my driver where we were.

Normally, the ships dock early in the morning and they allow passengers to disembark around 8 AM. The disembarkation starts after the ship is cleared by customs. NCL uses color coded bag tags each with a different time slot for disembarkation. You can pick the time slot that is convenient for you. The last passenger will disembark about 2.5-3 hours after disembarkation starts.
You can plan to disembark around 9:30 or 10 AM. That way you are not rushing to get off the ship in the morning and it will give your family members enough time to get to NY,

Depending on when the ship arrives, it usually takes about 30 mins to clear customs; then if you decide to carry your own luggage off you can be one of the first ones off the ship, (or you can leave at any time you desire) which on average is about 8:30am. It has been my experience that more people than usual carry off their luggage than in any other port. Customs usually goes pretty quickly, but I would say a safe time would be 9-9:30am, I would leave yourself about 30 mins to get off the ship and curbside.
